I don’t think I’ve ever seen Playmobil soldiers used in quite this way. The screenplay is full of errors, but the filming is quite impressive. Five Playmobil Confederates survive the war and pledge to avenge the South over the end of slavery and Sherman’s March across Georgia. Mannie Gentile, eat your heart out my friend. 🙂[Uploaded to Vimeo on April 19, 2014]
Diehard Playmobil Confederates

I just now came across this Kevin. Even whacked history is better with toy soldiers.
The lost gold bars of Sherman! Stand aside Jacob Waltz.
This certainly raises the bar for Civil War Lego films!
There’s a bit of Hell On Wheels and the Good the Bad and the Ugly here with a Confederate revenge intrigue extending post war.
The following is more of the expected standard – though it makes a cute feature out of the clunkiness.
The western motif in Civil War memory seems to be making a bit of a comeback. Think of Django.
The cannons actually recoil when they fire! That’s something that can’t be said for “Glory” or “Gettysburg.”
It’s pretty impressive.
Kevin, this is adorable. I cannot wait until the next installment. Do I see some gold there?
Yes, Sherman apparently stole gold bars.
So they’re trying to avenge the Confederacy from the South…west? It may explain the desert scenes, like it was The Outlaw Josey Wales. At least they acknowledge slavery.
